This event is so remote from us (in the UK and no doubt elsewhere) we will not even care...or even consider what is out there (and the potential for our demise as a living planet)...sad but true.Great writing ND.Anna :o]
I know. It will be forgotten but I found it extraordinary-something that should be pondered. Thanks for your kind comments :-)
remind us whats out there...dang...yeah...that was crazy..but it can happen...i hope we remember that...we are only a small marble in a great big pond...crazy though....
So true-small but beautiful :)
I like the wordplay imagery in this. It's "meatier" than most. :)
Ha- I like what you did there. Nice one :)
That's the power of nature !!!
Yes-reminds us of our place in the universe-ew can become so insulated. Thanks GS!
Wonderful poem. There are so many things out there that we really don't pay a lot of attention to until they approach us. This week both the meteor and the asteroid. I think these natural phenomena teach us that we are more vulnerable than we would like to think!
We are always awed and reminded by nature that we are small and just a speck in the big universe ~ Lovely share ~
Great and timely words.
LOVE it.. how wonderfully written..
Wonderful word play throughout! Great write!
I love how you brought this "news item" to life and expanded our vision to all that's "out there". Loved it!
Hi ND!! Excellent write, enjoyed the refrain, an incredible event!
Awesome write overall. The penultimate verse, however, is my favorite. The rapid-fire consonants and rhymes were excellent, really served an urgent tone.
Meteor!it is much more in size and demeanor than it sounds or sometimes, appears!Loved the word play. Nature is far too patient.
Thanks for leaving a comment. Have a great day :)
